[audio]The Free Press by Hilaire Belloc - Wandering
A work was completed March 1, 2011: One hundred years ago, Hilaire Belloc presented his world with this remarkable little essay on the value of the free press as contrasted with the big-money big-government news sources that dominated his world and filled it with lies and misdirection that served it's masters. Never dreaming of an Internet, he would likely have written the same essay in defense of such as Wikileaks or other sites dedicated to exposing the lies, cheating, and manipulations of tod...

[audio]The Eye Witness by Hilaire Belloc - Wandering
This book was completed February 16, 2011: "The Army had come three days over the ridges of the little hills, each higher than the last, following the great Roman road that led westward to Pampeluna. All the main body had passed long before from its repulse on the Ebro, and this, the rear guard, was perhaps three miles in length, not more; it was heavily impeded with waggons; some few of the richer men that had fallen sick were carried in litters, and though the way was still hard and good, cent...

[audio]The Path to Rome by Hilaire Belloc - Wandering
"Now there is another thing book writers do in their Prefaces, which is to introduce a mass of nincompoops of whom no one ever heard, and to say 'my thanks are due to such and such' all in a litany, as though any one cared a farthing for the rats! If I omit this believe me it is but on account of the multitude and splendour of those who have attended at the production of this volume. For the stories in it are copied straight from the best authors of the Renaissance, the music was written by the ...

[audio]A General Sketch of the European War - First Phase, by Hilaire Belloc - Ray Clare
This reading was completed December 16, 2010 by Ray Clare. "It will be apparent that what is called the "Frederician Tradition," which is the soul of Prussia in her international relations, is not an unprincipled thing. It has a principle, and that principle is a patriotic desire to strengthen Prussia, which particular appetite overweighs all general human morals and far outweighs all special Christian or European morals...

A clear boundary exists between the servile and the non-servile condition of labour, and the conditions upon either side of that boundary utterly differ one from another, Where there is compulsion applicable by positive law to men of a certain status, such compulsion enforced in the last resort by the powers at the disposal of the State, there is the institution of Slavery ; and if that institution be sufficiently ...

We see some one thing in this world, and suddenly it becomes particular and sacramental; a woman and a child, a man at evening, a troop of soldiers; we hear notes of music, we smell the smell that went with a passed time, or we discover after the long night a shaft of light upon the tops of the hills at morning: there is a resurrect...

[audio]Warfare in England - Hilaire Belloc
"No one can read the story of warfare in this country without being struck by one outstanding mark of it which separates it at once from the corresponding story of warfare in other European lands. That mark is this : the chief town of the island is after an early date, that is from the eleventh century onwards, never besieged nor even entered against its will by a hostile army. From noting an anomaly of such importance the student is led to consider the causes of it, and so discovers that London...

The military portion of that book was concerned with the story of the initial Germanic success. It was pointed out how, together with the numerical superiority, the enemy enjoyed other advantages : first, that he had carefully prep...

"If an island, especially an island in a tidal sea, has a good river system, that system is bound to be of more benefit to it than would be a similar system to a Continental country. For it must mean that the tide will penetrate everywhere into the heart of the plains, carrying the burden of their wealth backward and forward, mixing their peoples, and filling the whole national life with its energy; and this will be especially the case in an island which is narrow in proportion to its length and...

And I say "unpleasant" because, however charming for the large Colonial yacht, it is the very devil for the little English craft that tries to lie there. Great boats are moored in the Southern Basin, each with two head ropes to a buoy, so that the front of them makes a kind of entanglement such as is used to defend the front of a position in warfare...
